New Tarekith production guide?

Post by Tarekith » Fri Oct 02, 2009 8:41 pm

Hey guys,

Been in a bit of a writing mood lately, and have started thinking about making a new production guide. Already done compression, arranging, mixing, mastering, and setting levels. Any other things you guys would like to see covered?

Besides EQ I should add, I really don't want to do an EQ guide :)

I think it's time for "music theory and harmony basics for dummies" :mrgreen:

Whew, that's a tall order! TBH, I do know quite a bit of theory, but I don't use it enough anymore to really feel comfortable writing a guide on it. I think there's better guides than I could write already out there already geared for beginners, like the Raven Spiral one:

I like that idea.

whoa o_O thanks for the link :P looks simple & easy

Well IMO dealing with live situations is pure experience... cant really write a guide about it :D geez, I'd love a synthesis tutorial with examples...

I would love a writeup on latency so I can point n00bs to it. sooooo tired of writing the same thing over and over again. there are lots of usual questions, can't think of them now. :?

This would be short methinks.. but one about exporting tracks.
for example.. 16bit, 24bit.. dithering. etc.

wish i knew about this a long time ago.

Maybe your take on "preparing your song for live (not the software) performance"?

COSM did a great video on this but it's always a good topic and there are so many ways to do it I'm sure yours would add a ton of value.
